BOC and Corus renew gas contract

BOC has announced the renewal of its multi-million pound contract to supply Corus’ Trostre plant, near Llanelli in South Wales with nitrogen and hydrogen.

BOC has today announced the renewal of its multi-million pound contract to supply Corus’ Trostre plant, near Llanelli in South Wales.

The 10-year deal with Corus will see BOC invest to upgrade its existing facilities at Trostre to supply nitrogen and hydrogen to the Corus Packaging Plus plant. The nitrogen and hydrogen supplied by BOC will be used for the heat treatment of steel strip produced in South Wales.

News of this investment comes less than three months after BOC announced a 15-year deal with Corus to increase its supply of oxygen, nitrogen and argon to the Corus Strip Products plant at Port Talbot following a global rise in steel demand.

“The extension of this contract with BOC concludes a negotiation and design phase which has been professionally undertaken by teams from both companies in a spirit of co-operation and partnership which has typified our relationship over the years,” commented Trostre’s works manager, Stuart Wilkie.
